With a belief in a rights-based, process-oriented approach, Anju and Prabir have been working together for over 25 years now. Having travelled widely across the country, they have had the opportunity of associating with national/international organisations and academic institutions to work with marginalised groups and communities.
Their forte is participatory communication. They facilitate workshops, design communication & facilitation resources, practice participatory theatre, research and document community processes and make documentaries. At present they are working towards creating a body of work around critical thinking... a documentary on the state of schooling in the country and a series of story books for grown ups. Anju & Prabir have been facilitating a week-long course on Participatory Theatre for Development at IIM Ahmedabad for the last eight years.
Anju is a Post Graduate in Social Work. She has worked with Nirmitee, YUVA, AKES-I and as Director, Media Matters for 14 years.
Prabir is a college dropout and started working from an early age to support his family. He cherishes the enriching journey of having worked in a government factory, a nationalised bank and in mainstream journalism before being the founder managing trustee of Media Matters.
